Not Too Soon to Spook





















I don't know about you, but as soon as I start thinking about back-to-school I start thinking about Halloween. It's something about stressing out about not having enough time to come up with awesome costumes for my girls, or an irrational fear of not being able to find the best gigantic bag of candy on sale. But I seem to think waaaaaay ahead for Halloween - more so than other holidays.

So with that in mind, I want to see what kinds of Halloween projects you all are thinking of this year. Maybe you have something from last year that you Zuttered that you want to share - we will post some here and on the Inspiration Station on the Zutter Zisters site.

This cute little book was something made last year...it's a 3X4 mini book with black linen paper from Me & My BIG Ideas, and the little embellishment on the front is from a mini deck of cards from a pack of Halloween party favors. But the real topper is the little spider....made from two loops of remnant Zutter owire. Take a little puff ball (the metallic Halloween colors were scored in a dollar area of a craft store!), glue on some googley eyes and glue to the owire. I used a strong liquid glue, like FabricTac. Let all that dry real well before attaching. Then to attach to the book, take about three strands of DMC floss, knot it and thread it up through the bottom of the spider, and tie it to the owire. Simply Spooktacular!

Let's see what you can do!
